Jovenel Moïse Objects to Vote Verification, Wants Unity

LABADEE, Nord, HT (sentinel.ht) – The presumptive President-elect Jovenel Moïse hoped to move pass an unraveling electoral process by declaring the elections over. The candidate for PHTK said during a visit to the cruise ship, Harmony of the Seas, that he is thinking about projects for the future not the vote verification process that is underway.

Mr. Moïse told Gerald Maxineau of Le Nouvelliste that the elections were over and he has definitively turned the page. When asked about a possible decision by the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) tribunal to recount the votes, Moïse said that this was not the time for such a move.

“The people have finished making their decision. We are not going to talk about voting, but rather about the future of the country,” said Moïse.

The candidate for Parti Haitien Tet Kale (PHTK) appeared to extend an olive branch to opponents, particularly the three candidates who had filed disputes with the electoral tribunals. He told Mr. Maxineau, “we will see what can be done for the country in concert with the candidates who have taken part in the elections.”

Jovenel Moïse has been introducing himself as president-elect of all of Haiti and has been hammering his call for the nation to unite. “Mete tèt ansanm (Put our heads together)… the country should unite. It is extremely important for the well-being of the country,” he said.

The presumptive president-elect was in Labadee, a large beach-side property leased to Royal Caribbean Cruiselines, where participated in events on the occasion of the first stopover of the Harmony of the Seas.

On board the ship, Moïse addressed an audience of politicians and entrepreneurs, where he assured that his administration would be engaged in strengthening the economy through partnerships, not through demagogic “witch-hunting”.

Harmony of the Seas is the world’s largest cruise and it docked in Labadee with over 6,500 passengers.
